PST files are found with Outlook only, OE has .dbx files.  So look for the 
.dbx and you will find all of your mail boxes.  All of the filter settings 
however are located in the registry.  See the Tomsterdam site 
http://www.tomsterdam.com/insideoe5/backup/bu_full.htm for all OE 
information about backups etc.
